Increase Your Trade-In Value
Various tools are available to help you zero in on an acceptable trade-in value for your vehicle, though that trade-in value is generally not finalized until we fully examine it.
Often, your trade-in will be subjected to a full appraisal where it’s examined carefully and scrutinized for any signs of damage, rust, excessive wear, leaks, problems with vehicle parts or systems, the condition of the tires and brakes, and more. This process exists because even otherwise-identical vehicles can wind up in vastly different shape some years after they were built, based on how well they were cared for and maintained.
Maximize your trade-in value (and speed up the trade-in process) by ensuring that all service records are available for us (hopefully, you’ve stored these all somewhere). Touching up paint chips and scratches, addressing issues like burnt-out bulbs, worn-out wipers, fluid leaks, and the like, can all help increase your trade-in value as well, though typically not massively.
If the appraisal reveals some problems with your trade-in, interested shoppers may wish to ask the dealer if fixing those issues on their own dime might boost the trade-in value enough to make doing so worthwhile.
A good wash and a full interior detail may also help you get a higher trade-in offer.
Some shoppers will spend hundreds of dollars on maintenance and repairs before a trade-in appraisal, while others will trade in “as-is” for less money to more quickly make the switch into a newer car.
